Established in 1893, Arizona State Museum is the oldest and largest anthropological research museum in the U.S. Southwest, with expansive collections that are exceptional resources for the study, teaching, and appreciation of the region’s 13,000-year human history.
The Arizona State Museum and the University of Arizona are located on land that has been home to Indigenous peoples for 13,000 years. Today, the Tucson area is home to the Tohono O’odham and the Pascua Yaqui. Currently, there are 22 federally recognized tribes with reservation lands in the state of Arizona.
